Washington – OSHA has updated an online tool aimed at teaching small-business owners and workers how to locate workplace hazards.

The Hazard Identification Training Tool now features a health care scenario, in which a user can be an emergency department owner or a safety committee leader in a midsized emergency department. The user must identify and correct different hazards in the emergency department to protect workers.

Other scenarios involve manufacturing and construction facilities.

The tool also features new visual inspection training, in which users can observe workers and inspect a housekeeping cart and a patient lift for hazards.

It can be accessed on both PCs and Macs.
